Morning Coffee – Something in the Air Edition

I don’t really have a lot to say this morning. I think I said myself out yesterday.

Speaking of yesterday, the “sense of the commission” resolution on consolidation passed 6-3-1. Two commissioners weren’t in attendance at the time of the vote. The matter comes up again on Monday. Send your Commissioner an email in support of the resolution.

It’s been busy and that business isn’t gonna stop until after the 16th. Then it’s time for the “holiday busy” that will, no doubt, ensue. As for me, I’m just ready for this semester to be over so I can sleep for a week.

For those of you not following along in your bulletins…Trace started her new gig yesterday. Keep her in your thoughts, moving ain’t easy (I know, I’ve done it more times than I care to recount).

So what about the title? Yeah, I don’t know, just felt it this morning…

On to the coffee!

Yesterday was, among other things, World AIDS Day. Mediaverse looks at the numbers with a skeptical eye. One thing to think about, the Ryan White numbers are just those who benefit from the program, not all people infected are included. So in addition to those that don’t know their status, there are a whole bunch of folks who do, but may not be in the dataset. #justsayin’

Unemployment benefits are likely to be cut soon. Think that’ll damage the economy? Probably. Think it’ll make people’s already hard lives harder? Definitely.

Sell the TVA?!?! Not now, they’re just finishing up the first part of their coal ash cleanup.

Pickler, take note…Negotiation CAN work, but only when you’ve got two sides that trust each other.

I noted this a couple of days ago… the blatant fear mongering from the CA. Well, I’m sure in light of that article and this event someone’s head is exploding right now.

Luttrell readys the veto pen for the first time.

Here’s a wholly incomplete and half-hearted attempt at reporting what went down at the County Commission Committee meetings yesterday. For more better coverage follow @mikecarpenter1 or @memphisdaily.

All I can say is WOW.

And finally, Mary Cashiola says goodbye to the Flyer faithful as she embarks on a new gig at the Mayor’s office. Good luck Mary, and cheers!

I need a donut. Have a great day!

    In light of this post, I find it ironic that my Volkswagen driving, scruffy haired surfer self was one of only 3 people to stand up and speak in favor of Mulroy’s resolution and I voted against the proposal on the last ballot. Where were all the other supporters?
